    ..Depletion of Treg cells abolished these effects of SEA and IL-13 expression in OVA-specific T cells. SEA promoted TH2 responses of allergen-specific T cells and asthma pathogenesis by activating Treg cells. ..

    ..In any case, deletion of a particular domain showed similar effects on all 3 functions of Foxp3. Therefore defining each of the immunological features of Treg cells requires intact Foxp3 proteins. ..
